The 2005 Shiraz expresses oodles of spicy dark berry fruits, plums, cassis and earthy mint. On
the palate, it's a succulent thunderbolt of pure Shiraz, right down to the last gulp. Made with
structure and grip, the vibrant, juicy length lingers with a clean "have another glass" finish.
Drink now or hide in the cellar for 3 years.
"The 2005 Shiraz is purple-colored with aromas of smoke and blueberry. Medium-bodied, with
ample spicy fruit, it offers good concentration, depth, and balance. Drink it over the next 2-3
"Fresh and lively, with a smoky edge to the blackberry and cherry flavors."
"Dark red. Youthful pepper-accented cassis and blackberry on the nose, with a suggestion
of cracked pepper. Fleshy in texture, with jammy dark berry flavors, soft acidity and a hint of floral pastille. Very persistent sweet blackberry and kirsch on the finish. Vaguely liqueur-like but there's good acid lift and thrust here. Remains just this side of sweet." Stephen Tanzer's
